2018-04-30 analysis When Philadelphia originally traded for MacDonald back in 2013-14, this kind of production was likely what the front office was looking for, and MacDonald finally delivered. The 21-points were the most he's recorded in orange and black and it was also aided by a career high 7.3 shooting percentage, and his 131 blocked shots were second most on the team. The increase in scoring was especially remar
2018-04-30 update MacDonald potted six goals and dished out 15 assists while playing in 66 games in 2017-18, going plus-eight and averaging 19:51 of ice time.
2018-03-23 analysis MacDonald has a plus-9 rating over his past five games and this was his second multi-point effort in that stretch. Despite the recent hot streak, he has just 19 points in 59 appearances for the season, so MacDonald's value in most formats remains limited.
2018-03-23 update MacDonald dished out two assists and finished with a team-best plus-3 rating during Thursday's 4-3 win over the Rangers.
2018-03-16 analysis This was just the second multi-point showing of the campaign for the veteran and it improved MacDonald to only six goals and 11 assists through 55 games. Also, while his two tallies and two helpers through his past five games might stand out, MacDonald hasn't been able to sustain a notable offensive run all season.
2018-03-16 update MacDonald scored a goal and added an assist during Thursday's 5-3 loss to Columbus.
2018-03-06 analysis The 31-year-old is spending a career-high 63.7 percent of his 5-on-5 shifts in the defensive zone this season, which is not an ideal fantasy setup. Simply put, we cannot see many fantasy owners deploying MacDonald, who has only 13 points in 50 games with his overall playing time fleeting.

2018-03-04 analysis MacDonald has struggled on the Flyers' blue line lately, producing just one goal and a minus-6 rating over the last eight. He was log 18:50 of ice time Saturday against the Lightning, so it's unclear exactly when this injury was incurred. He'll eye a return Wednesday against the Penguins, but his absence will allow Johnny Oduya to make his Flyers debut Sunday.

2018-03-01 analysis The veteran entered Thursday's contest averaging 20:02 of ice time per game, so it was a little surprising to see his minutes drop significantly. However, the Flyers were trailing most of the night, and MacDonald's far from an offensive force. Fantasy owners can continue to ignore him in most settings.
2018-03-01 update MacDonald blocked two shots through just 16:54 of ice time during Thursday's 4-1 loss to Carolina.
2018-01-24 analysis The veteran defenseman has been on an impressive offensive run of late with a goal and six assists through his past eight games. However, fantasy owners will definitely want to temper expectations because his recent outburst has him up to just 10 points -- two tallies -- for the campaign. It's also worth noting that MacDonald isn't receiving consistent power-play time and has just 47 shots through
2018-01-24 update MacDonald scored his second goal of the season and blocked four shots through 21:31 of ice time during Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win against Detroit.
2017-12-30 analysis MacDonald's locked into a defense-first role with 69.5 percent of his five-on-five shifts beginning in the defensive zone and an average of 2:22 of shorthanded ice time per game. As a result, the veteran defenseman has collected just a single goal and two assists through 23 games this season. There aren't many fantasy settings where he's a viable option.
2017-12-30 update MacDonald failed to mark the scoresheet for the 11th consecutive game during Friday's 5-3 win over Tampa Bay.
2017-11-27 analysis The veteran defenseman has missed Philly's last 15 games this this leg injury. MacDonald has played about 20 minutes a night for the bulk of his career, so once he's fully up to speed that should be his role once again. The veteran defenseman has missed Philly's last 15 games with this leg injury. MacDonald has played about 20 minutes a night for the bulk of his career, so once he's fully up to speed, he should be around that mark again while sprinkling in an occasional point.

2017-11-15 analysis Back in MacDonald's heyday, he'd be good for a point total in the mid-20s and would also see power-play ice time, but between injuries like these and having to appease fantasy owners only at even strength and the penalty kill, the 31-year-old's fantasy prospects have been fleeting. Expect him to sit out Thursday against the Jets.

2017-11-14 analysis MacDonald has already missed nine games as a result of this ailment and, if the reports are to be believed, is in line to miss at least three more. The stay-at-home blueliner had just one goal on the season prior to getting hurt, but his defensive contributions upon his return could be of immense benefit to his real life team, as well as virtual ones that favor defensive stats.

2017-11-14 Date Injured 2017-11-09 2017-11-14
2017-11-09 analysis The veteran defenseman has already missed the last seven games with his injury, but returning to the ice in any capacity should count as a significant milestone in his rehab. MacDonald usually reaches triple digits in the blocked shots column over the course of the season -- he had 18 of those in his first eight games -- so that's what fantasy owners can look forward to upon his return.
2017-11-09 update MacDonald (lower body) is seeking clearance from team doctors to be able to resume skating next week, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

2017-10-22 analysis The 31-year-old blueliner has just one goal in eight games this season, but averages 19:36 of ice time. Despite not being much of a fantasy asset, MacDonald does have 15 shots on goal and 18 blocked shots. While he's out, Brandon Manning will likely slide into a more consistent role for the Flyers.

2017-10-18 analysis MacDonald has struggled to move the fantasy needle -- outside of the blocked-shots column -- for a number of years, and he hasn't received notable power-play time since the 2014-15 campaign. He projects to continue tilting the scales in the peripheral categories, but with a new guard of young defensemen pushing for ice time, MacDonald's role is likely to decline as the season progresses.
2017-10-18 update MacDonald has started 61.9 percent of his five-on-five shifts in the defensive zone and averaged 3:00 of ice time killing penalties per contest through the first six games of the season.
